Two people have been detained in Bosnia-Herzegovina in connection with Friday’s attack on the U.S. embassy in Sarajevo, Serbia’s В92 TV channel reported, quoting Bosnian media.
A gunman, armed with a Kalashnikov automatic rifle, opened fire on the U.S. embassy building in the Bosnian capital on Friday afternoon. A security guard was injured in a 30-minute shooting spree described by the country’s president as a “terrorist attack.”
The attacker was captured at the scene. The Bosnian authorities identified him as a 23-year-old ultraconservative Muslim from neighboring Serbia.
Two other suspects were detained in north-eastern Bosnia, В92 quoted the country’s state prosecutor as saying. Police are considering whether to arrest them, he said.
A village where the two men have been detained hosts a large radical Islamic community of Wahhabists. The gunman, who once lived in the village, visited it two days before the attack, the report said.
